I use clay to make figurative pieces and illustrated vessels. I throw and tear and stick, working with both plan and chance, then sit back and ponder until characters and stories begin to suggest themselves. My intention is to draw you in, to make you smile, to encourage you to spend time looking, to fire your imagination. I also take commissions, which I create using similar techniques.
